Safety is Third, Not First, and We All Know It Should Be
Conclusion In educational opportunities, train like you plan to fight. Since there may not be an actual patient, the “benefit” in the risk-benefit analysis may be lesser. However, taking no risks in training ensures you’ll be less prepared to take risks—even R+ risks—in actual operations. For example, you don’t stop patient care because it’s raining, so don’t stop your training simply because it’s raining. Also, during your education, fight the idea that we can ever say “the scene is safe.” Accept that our work is done in an imperfect environment where safet...

But it didn’t. So that’s good.
